  Description     : CPU profiler and flame graph tool for Python

Pyflame is a tool that uses the ptrace system call to analyze running
Python processes and collect stack traces and generate flame graphs. It
can be used as an alternative to, or alongside, existing Python
profilers like cProfile.

I am also the upstream author of Pyflame, and Pyflame is something I
developed for my work at my job. It's already been packaged for Debian
for our internal use, but I'd like ot contribute it to Debian proper.
I'll have the time and resources to maintain this package because it
will be part of my work at my job.

This will be my first package in Debian and I may need some hand-holding
through the process. I would very much like to eventually become a DM,
and I hope this is the first package of many that I can help maintain.
Therefore I will need a sponsor.

One further note: Pyflame itself is written in C++, and can be built
against Python2 or Python3. I'm not sure what the best way to package
that is.
